Item 8.01. Other Events

Fixed Income Discount Advisory Company ("FIDAC"), a wholly owned subsidiary of
Annaly Capital Management, Inc. ("Annaly"), is a registered investment advisor
that serves as investment manager to, among other entities, Prodesse Investment
Limited ("Prodesse"), a limited liability Guernsey-incorporated closed-end
investment company listed on the London Stock Exchange and the Channel Islands
Stock Exchange. At June 30, 2006, FIDAC had under management approximately $2.6
billion in net assets and $14.1 billion in gross assets of which Prodesse
represented approximately $0.2 billion and $1.9 billion, respectively.

On August 15, 2006, the board of directors of Prodesse announced that it had
received a notice from Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited on behalf of
funds managed by Laxey Partners Limited requiring Prodesse to convene an
extraordinary general meeting of shareholders to consider resolutions to remove
four of the five directors of Prodesse and the appointment of replacement

The extraordinary general meeting was convened on October 12, 2006 for the
purpose of considering the resolutions. At that meeting, the resolutions failed
to pass, and the existing Prodesse board will stay in place.


             Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by
the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
